A Girl in the World

Form 5 have collaboratively made this sculpture.  We looked at Grayson Perry’s sculpture ‘Our Mother’ and ‘Our Father’ and came up with ideas about what a girl today would want, need or might experience – such as protection, friends, food etc.  Each girl then made an object that represented a concept.  We developed skills in construction with cardboard and card and then gave it a bronze patina to give it cohesion and weight. 

We were delighted that Grayson wrote to us and thought the sculpture was magnificent and was  ‘moved to think he had inspired such great art’.
